CAMDEN, N.J. — With crime rates soaring in Camden, Mayor Dana L. Redd announced Friday that she was moving ahead on a controversial plan for a county takeover of the Camden Police Department.
The announcement was short on details and offered no timeline for when Camden might enter into an agreement with Camden County, saying only that the entities had exchanged financial information and were working to "refine" a plan.
